The joint Daniel Regan directed videos utilize captivating imagery in ways not seen in previous Burna Boy videos.
Mirroring the reflective sombre lyrics of Thuggin, the video starts off in black and white with Burna Boy caring for two young boys and a motherly figure. As the video progresses, we witness a gripping fight which leads to the death of one of the men on Burna Boy’s side.
From there, colour emerges in the video as the Darko begins to play in the second half with ethereal dancers flocking round the body of the fallen fighter engaging in what appears to be leading his soul to the afterlife
